Aston Villa fans were angry after yet another poor performance from their team.
Indeed, Aston Villa who has already been relegated from the Premier League produce an unconvincing performance in a match where they lost 4-2.
The interim coach, Eric Black stated that he understands the Villa fans reaction as they have witnessed a miserable season for their club. He added that they have every reason to behave like this and that he does not want to tell them what to do.
Even the Southampton manager, Ronald Koeman felt sorry for the Aston Villa players and said that he has never witnessed such an atmosphere when playing away. Indeed, the fans did not come at the stadium to support their team but rather to vent their anger.
Each time a Villa player had the ball they were booed by their own supporters. It was tough for the players to perform in these conditions but this is what happened when you play poorly for a whole season. Only Ashley Westwood, Jordan Ayew, and Alan Hutton was cheered by the fans as they recognized these players were giving everything they have for the club.
Long opened the scoring for Southampton thanks to a precise cross from Ryan Bertrand. The second goal will come in the 40th minute after poor defending from Lescott. The ball will fall to Tadic, who will not miss from long range.
Aston Villa will reduce the deficit in the 45th minute thanks to Ashley Westwood, who will take advantage of poor defending by Southampton.
After the break, Southampton will score another goal from outside the box thanks to Tadic. But again, they will gift Aston Villa another goal when they left Westwood unmarked. However, Mane will score the last goal of the game in the final stage of the match to give Southampton some breathing space.
